What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins are small, visible veins that are most commonly seen on women. They can be due to a number of factors, including heredity, hormonal changes, birth control pills, and long periods of sitting or standing. It can be very difficult to prevent these veins from appearing, which is why it is important to know your treatment options. The Cutera Laser vein treatment can give you back smooth, flawless skin once more.
The Cutera Laser Vein Treatment
This treatment uses light energy to coagulate the blood within the problem vein. Blood flow is eventually rerouted into a healthy vein, and the problem vein will disappear. This treatment can be carried out on veins all over the body, including the face and legs.
What Happens after Treatment?
After your quick and easy vein treatment, you may experience some redness and bruising. When treating larger veins, the Cutera Laser vein treatment may cause some discoloration that will eventually fade.
Most patients can resume normal daily activities immediately following their treatment, although we may recommend avoiding hard exercise for a day or two. It is important to protect your skin with sunscreen, as the treatment area may become more sensitive for a time.
Your results from the treatment should become visible two to six weeks after you leave our office. The Cutera Laser vein treatment does not prevent new veins from forming, so if you have any new spider veins pop up you can always return for another treatment.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Candidate for this treatment include both men and women who are interested in removing spider veins and reticular veins. Individuals of all skin types and tones can be considered for this treatment.
